Council 64: Local Update – Jun. 14, 2013

MEC Elections

Sincere thanks to all who submitted a willingness to serve at our recent Master Executive Council Election and special congratulations to those elected. While not all can be chosen our leadership is only as strong as the volunteerism and the activism of the members it serves. Representing at the MEC is a monumental undertaking which requires consideration of forces from above, below, and aside. We wish our elected leaders strength and focus and thank them for their dedication.
